Great hotel, great location, super friendly staff. And there actually is a little dog that roams the lobby. Everything was clean, rooms were unique, and many have a balcony, which is pretty unique for a hotel in this price range. The only minor disappointment is that they did not have complimentary breakfast like most hotels in the Holiday Inn brand.... More

Due to the Holiday Inns being filled for the Kentucky DERBY down the road in LuVuL, we got to experience Hotel INDIGO for the 1st time. From the view, as we approached the hotel, to the entry and lobby, we were impressed. That impression carried over as we experienced the room. I would describe the whole visit as a new,... More

A gem in a gem of a town. First-class from the second you walk into bright attractive lobby and are greeted by Miles, the four-legged ambassador. Clean, spacious, well appointed rooms; excellent staff. Perfect location. Excellent restaurant and no additional charge for room service. Plus free bottled water and Snapple

Columbus was a surprise, being such a hub of modernist architecture. Hotel Indigo fits right in with a stylish building with gorgeous rooms. My room felt more like a NY apartment with curved walls, dividers and a lobby. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The bathroom with it's walk-in shower was lovely with toiletries by Aveda and lush towels.... More

We posted a negative (sort of) review of our stay at the Indigo in Athens Ga, but this was much nicer. First, it was easy to find, had a doorway, and lots of free parking out front without going through hoops. Second, it was much brighter than the Athens place, and well lit. Third, they have a house puppy, a... More
